Yesterday's (4-17) show at The Reef was canceled. We ask that you keep our singer, Larry, in your thoughts and prayers as he undergoes recovery in the ICU from Friday's heart surgery. Both the doctors and Larry's family assure everyone that the prognosis is excellent and that he will be back on his feet in no time. In our absence at The Reef, thank you for supporting the Bobby Smith Band, who graciously stepped up and covered the date---and to the staff and management of The Reef for being so understanding.
Please visit here again for updates on Larry's condition (or use the facebook link below). Thanks, again, everyone!

4-Play Band performed on the Talk Philly show on CBS3 on Tuesday, July 16th, with Ukee Washington & Katie Fehlinger. The segment was aired on the Talk Philly ShowThursday, August 29th (Hosted by Ukee Washington & Pat Ciarrocci). We were treated warmly from the moment we walked into the CBS3 facility. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was just soooo nice and kind to us. (Broadcast 3.1; FIOS 003; XFinity 002; RCN 3)
Billy & Paj (and Kris & Loretta) were invited by ?estLove (whom we first met at age 5) to be backstage guests at the Philly 4th of July concert to renew old Lee Andrews & The Hearts acquaintances (Donn, Jaqui, and Karen & family) and to spend time with recent and new friends on the job. It was so good to see everybody and to see that they were all healthy, happy, and doing fine. The weather was fine and it was a great day of music and camaraderie. Thanks to everyone! We are truly blessed!
We at Komen send our heartfelt appreciation for the support and generosity of the donation. We Thank you sincerely for choosing Komen Philadelphia for your fundraiser and hope we can partner for next year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
That donation will help pay for free screening and mammograms and treatment for uninsured and underinsured women who I know are thankful to your Band as well.
Through those screenings many lives have been saved and know that the 4-PLAY BAND has helped us to continue our mission in serving woman throughout the Tri-State area.
Best regards, Susan G. Komen Philadelphia

Thanks to everybody who came out to see us at The Reef on Friday, March 13 and at the St. Patrick's Party at St. Helena's Hall on Saturday, March 14.
A very special shout out to the honest soul who found a piece of kit left behind by us and turned it in to the Reef staff. Please contact us---we would like to show our appreciation.
Barnaby's is a great place to dine and party, so, next time, come on out! We have to thank all of the staff who always make us feel right at home and help us in every way. It also doesn't hurt that the owner is a great guy who loves his customers, staff and entertainment. He also makes outstanding flatbread pizza.
